Blog Banter #26: "The Beauty of EVE" (OOC)

It is a pity that when CK initiated this sharing amongst EVE bloggers with "Blog Banter #1" my attention was diverted from EVE, elsewhere. Now, almost three years later I will finally enjoy participating in my very first blog banter...

What is Your Motivation?

"why you doing this? You ain't makin money!"
A reoccurring question posed to me is what motivates me to walk the path of civil engineer? Each time that question is posed (in a myriad of variations) to me by pod-pilots, I am never afforded the opportunity to answer it myself. Instead, the inquisitive insert their own observation in my stead- and that answer is always the same,

"there are better ways to earn ISK."

Miner's Tears 1: Captain Veldruk

There he was: Captain Veldruk quietly mining in a little belt in the corner of the Hjortur system. Mr. Veldruk was not pleased when I confiscated a full cargo container of ore he had left lying about, so the man returned in a Bestower, and attempted to take as much ore as he could in a "snatch and grab" play that utterly failed!

A hint, Mr. Veldruk, do not take the item until you are aligned and ready to warp.

One can only imagine the terrible day of mining that could cause a scar of that magnitude!

I lay waste to his Bestower, leaving a sliver of hull remaining before I offered Mr. Veldruk a ransom proposition. Instead of looking kindly upon my offer, Mr. Veldruk decided to take matters into his own hands and destroy his own ship! Fortunately, for Mr. Veldruk the contraband he had removed from my cargo container remained intact. However, what ensued was the snarkiest, perhaps the most inappropriate tirade I have yet experienced during my time in New Eden. Enjoy!

Chances are if you are reading this page you are at the mercy of 'old Pegleg Punk. While mulling over his ransom demands you are probably wondering if the shifty fellow will indeed honor his end of the bargain once you make his wallet "blink"?

The answer is a resounding, "YES" as long as certain criteria are met...
